Zero Waste

The Zero waste principle and its implementation in practice means a holistic, systematic approach to eliminating loss or waste. Products are designed to be durable, repaired and recycled. The products are designed to be used for cradle development.

In the manufacture of textiles and clothing, the zero waste principle has been widespread in the 2000 century. The garment or product is designed in such a way that no cutting waste arises. “Normal” material loss already in the assembly phases of the garment can be 15%. The waste-free product can be designed with all-over-the-air scraping or cutting plan, but also by folded or pleated fabric. For Zero waste planning, the idea is to use the entire material. The only rule is that the amount of waste generated is zero.

The dimensions of the Vekki skirt are aware of the design stage, as well as the length of the required fabric. I know the yarn grades, dresswork, fabric weaving density and kude yarn chapter exactly. It means wired. The tracks are separated by cut-off stripes into the weaving fabric and precise cutting is possible. Thus, there is no waste at the cutting stage. The pieces of the skirt are straight and the shape of the product is achieved by pulling. Design and material provenance pass the Zero waste method with the most hands. 

The towing wires remain pending reuse.

The drawstrings woven from the cloth to the fabric are pulled off after the vector. The yarn is durable and slip-resistant, but a snippet. The towing rods can be bundled for new use.
